Congratulations to the Tangram team (CNRS, Inria, Université de Lorraine), winner of the Best Paper Award at the IPCAI conference (International Conference on Information Processing in Computer-Assisted Interventions).
The conference, a leading event for innovation in the field of computer-assisted surgery, was held in Tokyo in June.
The prize rewards the work of Nariman Khaledian, Pierre-Frédéric Villard and Marie-Odile Berger on the simulation of fluid-structure interaction in the heart mitral valve. This work will enable practitioners to refine their diagnoses and increase their knowledge of this organ.
The Dynalips technology allows to precisely synchronize the lip movements of 3D characters and the words they are supposed to pronounce. This lipsync technology, based on the research work of Slim Ouni, associate professor in computer science and member of the Multispeech team (CNRS, Inria, University of Lorraine), offers a fast solution to precisely and automatically synchronize the lip movements of a 3D character with speech.
The workshop “Ethics in computer science: write your own dystopia” is intended for PhD students, students and researchers in computer science, natural language processing and philosophy. It aims to create a space for reflection and exchange to explore together the issues of research ethics through science fiction. It will take place on November 3 and 4, 2022 at the Château du Montet, in Vandoeuvre-lès-Nancy.
Open source and covering forty-six different languages, BigScience is a new artificial intelligence heavyweight offering natural language processing. Claire Gardent, a CNRS research director at the LORIA and winner of the CNRS Silver Medal, who also sits on the project’s steering committee, explains the principle as well as its potential applications.
Our digital lives are governed by a wide range of IT protocols used to protect the exchange of data, such as the EMV (Europay Mastercard Visa) standard for debit & credit card transactions or the TLS (Transport Layer Security) protocol, which protects internet connections. Jannik Dreier, an associate professor at Telecom Nancy and the University of Lorraine, and a member of PESTO, a joint Inria-LORIA team, has sought to identify vulnerabilities with these protocols. His ally in navigating these cryptographic labyrinths is a software program called Tamarin.
